My daughter was twelve months old when we noticed unusual symptoms and body movements in her. We had no family history of autism, but I had sufficient knowledge about this condition. We took her to a doctor at Teknon Medical Center and discussed her symptoms. The doctor started ABA therapy for her, and it worked well. Now she is three years old, and 70% of her symptoms have been reduced. Thanks to her amazing doctor.

I got my tumor removed at Quironsalud Teknon Medical Center. Although it was a benign tumor, I was extremely worried, but the doctors at Teknon Medical Center made everything easy. I had to undergo two sessions of radiation therapy, but I am glad to announce that the tumor is gone. I am extremely grateful to ClinicsonCall for connecting me to Teknon Medical Center.

I recently had a PET MRI Scan at Teknon Medical Center, and I must say that the experience was surprisingly comfortable. From the moment I walked in, the staff made sure I felt at ease, taking the time to explain the procedure and address any concerns. The technicians were incredibly patient and understanding, making sure I was comfortable before starting the scan. The facility itself was clean and well-maintained, contributing to an overall positive experience. I appreciate the care I received at Teknon Medical Center during my scan.

My son was born with scoliosis, and his hunched back deprived him of many activities that a normal kid would do. We started searching for the treatment, but it was unavailable in our country. We decided to search abroad and found out about clinics on call through a friend. We were set up with their coordinator, who suggested we consult Dr. Bartolme Oliver. We did a thorough research on the Internet and decided to visit him. Fortunately, the doctor said it was possible to correct the scoliosis for which he did the surgery. We stayed in Spain for six months, which was worth it. Dr. Oliver was very supportive and helpful throughout our journey.

The treatment plan was tailored to my situation, and the surgical procedure went smoothly without complications. After the surgery, I received excellent follow-up care, with regular check-ins to monitor my progress and ensure I was recovering well.

I recently experienced an Intracranial Hematoma, which was a scary and challenging situation to deal with. It started with a sudden and severe headache, followed by nausea and vomiting, and then I started feeling confused and disoriented. I was rushed to the Quironsalud Hospital Madrid, where I underwent a CT scan that showed bleeding in my brain. The doctors quickly diagnosed me with an Intracranial Hematoma and took me into surgery to remove the clot. The procedure was successful, and I am grateful to the skilled medical team that saved my life. The recovery process was not easy, as I had to spend some time in the ICU and then in a rehabilitation center to regain my strength and mobility. I also had to take medication to prevent seizures and manage my pain. Now, several months after the incident, I am still dealing with some residual symptoms, such as headaches and memory problems. However, I am slowly but surely regaining my independence and returning to my normal activities.

The team of doctors who performed the procedure were incredibly skilled and knowledgeable, and they explained everything to me in detail so that I knew what to expect. They also ensured that I was comfortable throughout the process and that all my questions were answered. The procedure was quick and painless, and I could go home the same day. I had some mild discomfort and headache for a few days afterwards, but it was nothing that could not be managed with over-the-counter pain medication. I am incredibly grateful for the care and attention that I received.

Why is it Worth Visiting Spain for Lumbar Discectomy?

Spain's combination of skilled surgeons, advanced technology, 30-40% affordable cost, and tourism opportunities make it a compelling destination for patients seeking lumbar discectomy surgery.

Best Lumbar Discectomy Clinics in Spain

  • Clinica Rotger Quironsalud is a multidisciplinary healthcare facility in Spain. Their neurosurgery department is known for its minimally invasive interventions through Da Vinci and its high success rate.
  • Vithas Madrid Hospital is another established facility that offers modern techniques, including endoscopic surgery, 3 Tesla MRI, intraoperative imaging, etc.

Best Doctors for Lumbar Discectomy in Spain

Why is Lumbar Discectomy Done?

A Lumbar discectomy typically treats herniated discs in the lower back, characterized by disc tears or ruptures, causing the soft inner material to bulge out and press on the nearby nerves or spinal cord. It may lead to:

  • Pain in the lower back or legs.
  • Numbness or tingling in the legs or feet.

Examinations Before Lumbar Discectomy in Spain

  • Physical examination

A physical examination assesses your symptoms and overall health. It may include checking your reflexes, muscle strength, and leg sensation.

  • Imaging tests

Imaging tests such as X-rays, CT scans, or MRI scans help diagnose a herniated disc and determine its location and severity.

  • Nerve conduction studies

Nerve conduction studies evaluate the function of the nerves in your legs and feet.

  • Blood tests

Blood tests check for any underlying medical conditions that may affect the procedure or your recovery.

How to Prepare for Lumbar Discectomy?

To prepare for the lumbar discectomy and maximize your chances of a successful recovery, you should;

  • Follow your doctor's instructions, including whether to stop taking certain medications or supplements, when to stop eating or drinking before the procedure, and what to bring to the hospital.
  • Avoid smoking and drinking before and after the surgery, as these activities slow down the healing process.
  • Prepare your home to ensure a safe and comfortable recovery. For example, you may need to install handrails or grab bars in the bathroom or move furniture to make room for mobility aids such as a walker or crutches.

How is Lumbar Discectomy Done in Spain?

  • Spanish doctors administer general anesthesia, which means they will be unconscious during the procedure.
  • Then, a Spanish surgeon makes a small incision in the skin over the affected spinal area. Sometimes, surgeons may opt for a minimally invasive technique, which involves making a smaller incision and using specialized instruments to access the spine.
  • The surgeon uses a microscope or other magnifying device to carefully remove the portion of the herniated disc that is compressing the nerves or spinal cord. It may involve removing a small piece of bone to access the disc.
  • Once the discectomy is complete, the surgeon closes the incision with sutures or staples and applies a sterile bandage.
  • The procedure takes about 1 hour to complete.

Recovery After Lumbar Discectomy in Spain

  • Most patients will stay in the hospital for a day or two following the procedure to be monitored and receive any necessary pain management.
  • Physical therapy may help improve strength and mobility and prevent scar tissue formation.
  • Pain after lumbar discectomy can vary from mild to severe. The doctor will prescribe medications to help manage pain and discomfort.
  • After the procedure, you may need to wear a back brace or restrict certain activities while recovering. For example, doctors may ask you to avoid heavy lifting, twisting, or to bend for a while after the surgery.
  • You will need to gradually resume normal activities over time, with guidance from your doctor.
  • The complete recovery may require about 2-3 months.
